COURSES

  Experimental Techniques 

Intermediate

In this intermediate course, we will continue the path begun in the initiation course, exploring new techniques, such as anthotype and experimental printing techniques, and delving into some already started in the previous course, such as chemigrams or solarigraphy. We will also open up new creative possibilities with photo intervention sessions and we will dedicate a session to work with Polaroid. As in other courses, each week we will have access to pre-recorded workshops and conferences to learn in-depth about the different techniques and also listen to the experiences of renowned artists in each field. Likewise, we will have chat support for any questions that arise, and a final meeting in which the projects or ideas of the students could be shared.
